Simple Mushroom Curry

What you need: 

1/2 large onion, finely chopped
olive oil, for sauteing
6 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

What you do: 

1. Saute onion in olive oil for 3-4 minutes. Next, add garlic and saute for an additional minute. Add cumin, coriander, chili and turmeric and continue to cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes.
2. Add water if the mixture becomes dry; do so 1 tablespoon at a time to avoid making the mixture too runny. Finally, add the mushrooms, tomato paste and salt.
3. You can add more water (anywhere from 3 tablespoons to 1/2 cup depending on the consistency that you personally want to achieve.)
4. Lower the heat to a simmer, cover and allow to cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add the chopped fresh cilantro.
I serve this dish over a plate of couscous.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

this was very yummy and pretty simple, befitting of its name...FYI it did stain my dishes a funky color.

Cilantro does not have a mild flavor, it's very robust.  It's used in a lot of mexican food.  It is sold in bunches like parsley, but the leaves are roundish and fringed.  You will definitely get much better flavor out of fresh rather than dried.  Cilantro is awesome.

Fan-freakin'-tastic!  I loved this!  I was concerned about the 6 cloves of garlic for one serving, but it was just perfect.  I followed the lead of another reviewer and used some coconut milk as my liquid, because I had some that needed to be used.  It was delicious as-is, but the coconut milk just added another flavor dimension.  I served it over cooked couscous, per the submitter's recommendation.  Thanks SO much!

I'm really not sure how it would turn out without it....I'd say give it a go and it'll probably still be good BUT it would be better next time you make it with the coriander!!
Sometimes I add garam masala to this so if youo have that maybe add half a teaspoon or so of that.

I have everything on hand except for the ground coriander.Will it still be worth making without it? Any recommendations for something to use in its place? Thanks...

'It came out great the only thing wrong with it is that it only makes a small amount.  Next time i will double it to make a meal that last a little longer.  The only thing i did different is that i added peas because my husband hates onions and i was asked not to add so much to the curry, so i had to add something.  The peas did add a little extra texture and went well with the mushrooms.

Wow, this was good! It had the rare distinction of pleasing *everyone* in my household-- and that does *not* happen often! I followed the recipe exactly, except I added about 3/4 c. (?) veg broth, as well as slightly more tomato paste (didn't level the measuring spoon), to make it pretty 'saucy'... my opinion: DEFINITELY add the cilantro, no question... I will SO make this again-- thanks!

This is so yummy!!  I loooove it.  I usually double all the ingredients except the mushrooms and add whatever other veggies I need to use up.  And, I use ketchup when I'm out of tomato paste, and it's just as delicious!  Yum!
